Information for Master’s students
All UMB students must submit the electronic version of their master's theses in Brage.
On 18 November 2009, the Education Committee decided that master’s theses must be submitted electronically as well as in a printed version.
You must always submit an electronic version
of your master’s thesis in Brage – even if you restrict access to the thesis.Submission to and publication in Brage in brief:
The advantages of using Brage:
- Guidelines for submission – log in using your ordinary
UMB user name and your zone 2 password (forgotten your password).
- The thesis must be submitted in PDF format.
- Information about conversion from UiO and SLU.
- The computer service's guidelines for merging PDF files.
- Even though you have submitted an electronic version of your thesis to Brage, you must nonetheless submit the printed version to SiT.
A receipt for submission in Brage must be submitted with the printed version of the thesis. The receipt will be sent to your email after registration is complete.
- The University Library will publish the thesis (if it is not confidential) in Brage so that the full content will be openly available in full-text version on the internet.
Submission of previous thesis
- Your thesis will be stored in Brage, UMB’s electronic research archive, and will always be accessible via a permanent internet address.
- You will retain the copyright to your thesis, while UMB is permitted to publish it in Brage.
- Brage is indexed by Google Scholar.
- Brage observes the international OAI (Open Archives Initiative) standard for exchange of metadata, and your thesis is therefore retrievable via national and international information services such as NORA and OAIster.
- Publication online is also a way of marketing your master’s thesis to a wider audience.
Students who have left UMB can contact the Brage group
for publication of previously approved theses.
